After much speculation, AMD has finally confirmed its line of Ryzen PRO 3000 CPUs destined for the desktop market aimed at small business and commercial use.
Ryzen PRO 3000 CPUs
The lineup features the Ryzen 5 PRO 3600 (6 cores, 12 threads, 3.6 GHz base clock speed, 4.2 GHz boost, and 65 W TDP), Ryzen 7 PRO 3700 (9 cores, 16 threads, 3.6 GHz base clock speed, 4.4 GHz boost, and 65 W TDP), and Ryzen 9 PRO 3900 (12 cores, 24 threads, a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz, boost at 4.3 GHz, and 65 W TDP).
Alongside there are four other products with integrated Radeon graphics, which are the Ryzen PRO 3200GE (4 cores, 4 threads, 3.3 GHz base speed, 3.8 GHz boost, and 35 W TPD), Ryzen PRO 3200 G (4 cores, 4 threads, 3.6 GHz base speed, 4.0 GHz boost, and 65 W TDP), Ryzen PRO 5 3400GE (4 cores, 8 threads, 3.3 GHz base speed, 4.0 GHz boost, and 35 W TDP), and Ryzen PRO 5 3400G (4 cores, 8 threads, 3.7 GHz base speed, 4.2 GHz boost, and 65 W TDP).
The CPUs feature 7nm Zen 2 core architecture, AMD GuardMI-based tech running on an in-built security co-processor, and OEM security measures, as well as improved power efficiency and single thread/multi-thread performance that trump those of Intel counterparts.
Athlon PRO Processors
In tandem, AMD also revealed it is planning a lineup of Athlon PRO processors with in-built Radeon graphics, with one confirmed product being the Athlon PRO 300GE boasting two cores, four threads, a base clock speed of 3.4 GHz, and 35 W TDP.
Although many of the AMD Ryzen PRO 3000 CPUs will feature in systems like HP’s EliteDesk 705 G5 Series and Lenovo’s ThinkCentre Desktops from this month onwards, AMD stopped short of providing details on when retailers will start shipping the processors as standalone products, but we presume it shouldn’t be too long.
